One Word – 2015

In order to discover my #oneword for 2015, I first had to reflect upon last year. 2014 was a difficult year for me both personally and professionally. Since it was a less than stellar year, I thought, “What is it that I DO want?”

The answer: Peace

I know it sounds Cliché; Peace for the new year, but for me ‘Peace’ is not as simple as ‘getting along’.

I’m looking for:

  • cooperation
  • doing the right thing
  • being UNselfish
  • innovation
  • a sense of self
  • hope
  • solutions
  • communication
  • honesty
  • forgiveness
  • openness
  • inspiring
  • inspiration
  • change

I could go on, but I think you get the idea. Peace – this is the word that I will try to live each and everyday. I will try to teach my students the joy, and complexity, of peace; and I am looking forward to a peaceful year (personally).
